have never invested in much in public education as we should have. your kid is yours and totally your responsible. we haven't had a very collective notion of these are our children. so part of it is we have to breakthrough the private idea that kids belong to their parents and recognize that kids belong to whole communities. once it's everybody's responsibility and not just the households, then we start making better investments. so what i thought was a relatively benign statement about the need to invest more resources into the public education system has caused quite a conservative motion. as we trace the fish tail back that has garnered thousands of responses in the form of tv segments, e-mails, tweets and phone calls started as a short item on a conservative blog's weekend traffic. it wasn't enough for sarah palin to find the spot un-flipping-believable. conservative host rush limbaugh, glenn beck and several on fox news devoted considerable air time to this 30-second ad run by and for another cable news network. >> do your children belong to you or do they belong to the governmen
